Mark Van Doren (June 13, 1894 December 10, 1972) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and critic. He was born in the town of Hope in Vermilion County, Illinois. The son of the county's doctor, he was raised on his family's farm in eastern Illinois. He was the younger brother of the academic Carl Van Doren. Mark Van Doren earned a B.A. from the University of Illinois in 1914 and a Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1920.Van Doren then taught at Columbia from 1920 to 1959 and twice served on the staff of The Nation. His students at Columbia included the poets John Berryman, Allen Ginsberg, and Robert Lax as well as the Japanologist and interpreter of Japanese literature Donald Keene, author and activist Whittaker Chambers, and writer and Trappist monk Thomas Merton. Van Doren helped Ginsberg avoid jail time in June 1949 by testifying on his behalf when Ginsberg was arrested as an accessory to crimes carried out by Herbert Huncke and others, and was an important influence on Merton, both in Merton's conversion to Catholicism and Merton's poetry. Since 1962, students of Columbia College have honored a great teacher at the school each year with the Mark Van Doren Award.Van Doren married the novelist Dorothy Graffe Van Doren in 1922.
